Thursday night’s School Committee decision in a 3-2 vote to lift the mask requirement for a trial period for COVID-19 vaccinated students and staff at Hopkinton High School from Nov. 1-19 was big news for Hopkinton and the state. The committee also discussed several other relevant issues during the two-hour meeting, including the input of the student council members regarding the mask decision and a proposal for a study that might lead to a trail behind Marathon School.
